Helping Parents in the Philippines

With loans to 934,000 entrepreneurs, nearly 100,000 families saving and 1.5 million insurance policies across the Philippines, Opportunity International continues to increase access to services for those at the bottom of the economic pyramid. An estimated 43 million of the Philippines’ total population of 103 million live on less than $2 a day.

Your gifts empower parents to improve the lives of their children through the achievement of real economic gains. Parents with increased incomes send kids to school and put more nutritious meals on the table. Your partnership made possible the following:

  • Social and personal development training materials and opportunities that improve health, hygiene and disease prevention for the whole family.
  • Two new Financial Literacy training DVDs to help clients operate profitable businesses.
  • More than 3,000 loan clients who are rebuilding their businesses following Typhoon Helen and the monsoons in her aftermath.  

Thank you for your support that helps parents build a better future for their children!
